Childrenz Challenge Mud Run

The girls asked to participate in Mud Run at MIS for the second year in a row. 

They had a wonderful time and did so well! Addy Grace rocked it! 
She may be a cross country runner. She definitely led the pack. 

They finished the race had lots of mud to prove it! 

We ditched their clothes and realized we weren't the only one who did so. Look at this pile!

Ha! Such a fun day!

Fun with Uncle Nate

John and I had tickets to a concert so we needed a sitter for the girls. 
Uncle Nate stepped in! 
Thursday night they headed to the Pemberville Free Fair, where they came home with 3 new additions to the family. 
Meet our new goldfish: Comet Jr., Skye iPad, and Bubble McDouble

The next day they headed to breakfast and then to Dave and Busters where they had tons of fun and brought home so much candy. 

Thanks Uncle Nate for allowing us to have a date night! 

We're Ready for School!

School starts this week. 
Ava, THIRD grade and Addy, KINDERGARTEN! 
They received their teacher letters in the mail and were so excited! 

Later that night we went to the salon and received MUCH NEEDED haircuts! 

Supplies are labeled and ready. Lunch boxes are awaiting on the counters and backpacks are by the door. We have Open House on Monday night. 
Bring on the school year! We are ready!

Zoo PAL Night!

We were invited to the after hours Zoo Pal event at the zoo! 
We are a PAL to the Koala Bear. 
I love Koala's! So do my girls! 
It was a girls night because Daddy was working.

We took swim suits and spent some time at the Splash Pad. 

We watched this guy for a long time! He's fascinating!

We stopped by to see our Pal, the Koala. We were in there for almost an hour. They had zoo employees there to answer any questions and share info about the animals. 
Zoo employee meet Ava Kate. 
I fully believe Ava could write a whole entire book on the koala. She asked so many GOOD questions. I was in awe of her. 

We finished the night with Dippin' Dots! It was a successful girls night out!

Daddy/Daughter (and Aunt Emily!!) Camping Trip

Daddy took the girls camping! 
They went back to Manapago in Indiana and stayed at our friends Lake House.  
They spent the days at the beach and nights by the campfire.
They had a wonderful time and I missed them so! 
But may have enjoyed a little time to myself...:)

Successful Dr Appointments

Monday afternoon turned into Sara's Shuttle Service taking the girls around to Dr. Appts. 
First up: ENT follow up for Addy. After some checking in the hears and checking pressure, we have been released to an as needed basis to the ENT. We have gone every three months for THREE years. Part of me feels like we broke up with someone. Ha! 
But we are super thrilled for this big step for Addy! 

Next up was Ava's well check. 
She is perfect. 
With the exception of choosing unhealthy snacks, she is as healthy as can be. 

Successful appointments for both girls!

Weekend Away

The day after Greenfield Village, John and I headed back north minus kids. 
We spent the day and night in Frankenmuth. We went to the brewery, the winery, and lots of shops! 
We had a wonderful time, just the two of us. 
We finished the night watching The Notebook (me sobbing) and eating cupcakes. It was perfection. 

We spent the next day shopping at Birch Run and finishing up the girls school shopping. 
It was such a fun weekend!
